Hello from Nottingham. I have a 2010 Topaz and I need to replace the leisure battery. It’s still got the original, which Auto Sleepers has confirmed is now of course obsolete. Can anybody recommend the right battery - 75 AH, 12 volts, dimensions roughly 28x17 x 20cms, so smaller than most, I think. Auto Sleepers would fit it for me if I got the appropriate one (their own supplier doesn’t do these) but it’s a bit if a trek down to Broadway. And I’ve no idea how I choose the right one.  Would welcome any help on this, please!

Hi Pat, welcome to the forum.

Lot of people on here swear by Tanya Batteries but I've never used them myself.  If you go on their site you can look at the 75AH options and see if any suit as they give you the dimensions of the battery.

Failing that, pretty sure another Topaz owner will be along soon enough with a proper answer for you.

(Looks like IanH beat me to it  smile!)

Hi Pat
Welcome to the forum from Bridlington !try the Tanya website ,it provides battery measurements and ratings etc, or visit your local Halfords branch, the larger branch’s have a fitting service.

wave Welcome to the forum Pat. I bought my leisure batteries from Tanya and the sizing from their website help a lot. The second leisure battery is under the passenger seat and as originally fitted was a different capacity and size to the other battery. I managed to match the capacity and size.
